Chicken Crockpot Recipe Nachos-Recipe 1


  • 1 (1 ounce) envelope taco seasoning
  • 2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts (or chicken thighs)
  • 1 (16 ounce) jar of salsa
  • 8 ounces tortilla chips (or more, as needed)
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (or more, as needed)
  • Additional toppings: sliced black olives, sliced green onions, guacamole, avocado, sour cream, salsa, or jalapeno peppers


  1. Spray slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray. Place chicken in bottom of slow cooker, sprinkle with taco seasoning, and pour salsa over top. Cook on HIGH for 2-3 hours, or on LOW for 4-6 hours. When chicken is finished cooking, shred with a fork and return to slow cooker.

  2. Keep chicken warm in slow cooker until ready to serve nachos.
  3. Place tortilla chips on a large serving platter (or a rimmed baking sheet). Spoon hot, shredded chicken over tortilla chips and top with shredded cheese. The cheese will melt from the heat of the chicken; or you can place the nachos under the broiler for a few minutes to get the cheese crispy and browned on top. Garnish with additional toppings of choice!
